Smart Antenna Market to Increase due to High Demand from U.S. and Canada
A smart antenna is a multi-element antenna in which the signals that are received at each antenna element are combined and managed intelligently in order to improve the performance of the wireless system. These antennas are capable of increasing the signal range, suppressing interfering signals, combating signal fading and as a consequence increasing the capacity of a wireless system.

Smart antennas are notably used in radio astronomy, radio telescopes; track and scan radar, acoustic signal processing and also used widely in cellular bandwidth systems such as universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS), long term evolution (LTE) and wideband code division multiplexing access (W-CDMA). Smart antennas offer the advantages of capacity enhancement, coverage extension, increased transmission efficiency, reduction of multipath fading and increased bandwidth among others. These antennas have two basic functions, namely: estimation of direction of arrival (DOA) and beam forming. Smart antenna systems recognize the DOA of a signal by using techniques such as multiple signal classification (MUSIC), matrix pencil method or estimation of signal parameters via rotational invariance techniques (ESPRIT)
The global smart antenna market is primarily driven by factors such as increasing demand for smart antennas in wireless communication and increasing application of smart antennas in smart phones. Smartphone have become a viable alternative to laptops and personal digital assistants (PDAs), offering features such as SMS and voice messages coupled with multimedia functionality, internet applications, inbuilt GPS capabilities and high data processing capabilities. Moreover, growing need for faster data transmission in modern communication systems with high speed downloading, optimized evolution data and web browsing has forced companies to increase the efficiency of wireless transmission this is positively impacting the growth of the global market
Based on technology, the global smart antenna market can be segmented into three segments, namely, SIMO (Single Input Multiple Output), MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) and MISO (Multiple Input Single Output). MIMO (Multiple Input Multiple Output) garnered the maximum revenue in 2014. The major functions of MIMO can be divided into three main categories, namely: pre-coding, spatial multiplexing and diversity coding. In addition, MIMO has the dual capability of both SIMO and MISO technologies. Due to this, MIMO technology has a significant advantage of increased capacity, when compared to its SISO and MISO counterpart. This is the reason why this technology is becoming ubiquitous in all wireless communication systems, in the form of Massive MIMO and Cooperative MIMO.
